answer to the previous quiz:

Victorian Gardens at Wollman Rink is one of a few amusement parks in the New York metropolitan area. This small but well-designed park opened in 2003, and it occupies the Wollman ice skating rink every summer in Central Park from Memorial Day thru September. The park hosts 12 rides. The majority of the rides are designed for children between the ages of 2 and 12. Congratulations to Marisa Lohse, Gregory Holman, Joe Ornstein, Candi George, Bill Ferrarini and Ravi Rozdon for answering the quiz question correctly.
